A personal note from the author:
I've seen first-hand the stress and heartache that infertility can cause. My desire to help couples get pregnant led me to first produce a guide book for my fertility patients. Then I started recording relaxations to give them, so they could listen at home. As couples changed their diets, made changes to their lifestyles and reduced their stress levels I noticed the success rates going higher and higher. Patients would often tell me that they had shed surplus weight and felt better than they had in years, with more vitality and lower stress levels. Little wonder that so many get pregnant naturally!
Many would jokingly say “can I come and live with you for a week so you can teach me how to cook and eat well”. It was from this plea that the second book in this series came into being. Eating to Get Pregnant will, I hope, transform your eating habits in an enjoyable and effortless way.
